This week I decided to bite the bullet and brave the queues at the infamous Pitt Cue Co.
I arrived and as you can imagine it was packed. This is however not surprising as the bar area is about the same size as a tenement building’s landing. After being told that it was likely to be an hour and a half wait we squirmed to the bar. Drinks are good if a little limiting as it's a predominately bourbon or rye cocktail list. However I liked all that I had. Let me tell you when confined for long periods of time you tend to get quite the thirst on, this is where your cheap night at one of London's best affordable restaurants starts to become not so cheap.
Once called downstairs to the sweet little dining room I started to get particularly excited by all the smells and the realisation that I was close to eating. The beef ribs are just great, everything you expect, sticky, tender, sweet and meaty. The special of saddle of pork was equally good if not better. The sides of chipotle slaw and mash were a real winner. I finished with the beef tip ends covered in a hot dream sauce! My personal favourite. No pud was had as I simply couldn't fathom the idea of eating more.
The bill came to just under £100 for two. So maybe not the most expensive meal ever but still allot considering the food came in at £40 and the rest was on drinks that you might not have really wanted but as you are waiting and don’t want to look like a lemon you have.
But if this is the way they need to work to keep on providing the great food they serve, I think good on them. You won't be disappointed.
